Don't let the location or the outside of the building dampen your opinion of this chiropractic office. Dr. Blum is a terrific chiropractor and the office is very friendly in general. They are able to fit you in when you need an adjustment, and the casual atmosphere is part of the reason you'll keep coming back.
PROS: Friendly and relaxed
The park is very nice, with lots of amenities. Little grassy yards for each camper. A laundry, a great little store with cute sweats and tee-shirts for sale.
The thing you might not get from the website is that it's not right on the beach. The 101 freeway runs between the campsites and the ocean. Tent campers are put right below the freeway. It's pretty noisey, but we kept the fan on in our RV and it sort of evened it out.
It's a bit of a walk to the beach, but all-in-all a good way to be able to visit the charming town of Ventura and have a space reserved for your RV.
PROS: Close to downtown Ventura and local beaches
CONS: Noise, a bit cramped
The nicest thing about this campground is all the live oaks. A lot of shaded campsites are available. We camp there about three times a year with a group. It's wonderful for largish groups because you can reserve the whole camp or half of it. The people who run it are very easy going.
My office orders from Toluca Garden every couple of weeks. The food is always good. I especially like that they use good slices of chicken in the Kung Pao Chicken and other dishes. None of that mysterious "knuckle meat" you get in some Chinese restaurants.
Deliveries always arrive hot and the delivery guys are very polite and helpful.
Good selection of travel books and maps. The staff is very helpful in finding what you want in the store or ordering it for you. A great place to spend a lunch hour browsing and fantasizing about where you will go next!
I've only been there once because it's near where I work. I paid $40 to have a washable suede jacket cleaned there. It came back with all the spots still there. I'd told them they could use water or whatever, but they didn't get it done and didn't even acknowledge that it wasn't right.
But efficient and thorough. Studio people must go here on their way home or out for the evening. It's always hopping. Convenient to Warner Bros., NBC, Disney, and the freeways.
Not bad for a convenience store. Yes, the prices are high, but what do you expect? The service is usually friendly and they will recognize you as a regular right away. Good selection of beverages, but steer clear of the dairy products. Two fuzzy yogurts and I am off the daiy here forever. Also, don't buy chocolate here. I've returned chocolate bars that were melted and funky.
PROS: Friendly cashier
CONS: Bad dairy, melted chocolate
This is a friendly shop, where you can drop by on your lunch hour and get a nice pedicure/manicure for a good price. Clean and efficient. One of the best deals in the area.
